If you are physically on campus, the Nurse Practitioner is available remotely for students 7 days a week between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. If you are residing on campus and not feeling well, please send an email to email@example.com. In your email, please give a brief description about your concern. The Nurse Practitioner will follow up with you and establish a tele-health appointment for you to further assess your condition.
If you are not physically located on campus (residing at an off-campus residence or at home) and you are not feeling well, please schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider, go to your local urgent care facility or call the “member service” number on the back of your insurance card for tele-health options.
If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you are having a medical emergency, call 911.
The CDC has launched a new “self-checker” on its website that allows you to answer a few questions about yourself and your symptoms. Based on your responses to the questions, information is provided to help you make decisions about seeking appropriate medical care. This tool is not in lieu of medical advice and is not intended for the diagnosis or treatment of COVIOD-19. To access this tool 24/7, please visit http://j.mp/2QsphUr and click on the orange self-checker box in the lower right hand corner of the page.
